Peekaboo!

Jingle Brains - A wild, thoughtless, rattling fellow. - Francis Grose's The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue

The Dictionary of Thieving Slang (1721), says a jingle brains is "maggot-pated fellow."Maggot-pated" is an obsolete expression meaning "silly."

Source here

Well hello, beautiful people. Getting back after 3 days. You know, things are just tough and I had to squeeze a little time here from time to time.

Anyway, I had to look this one up to find the origin although I already knew the meaning based on the context I heard it.

I was watching a movie called "Lawless" with Shia LaBeouf. It is about 1931 Franklin, Virginia during the prohibition days when people were moon shining (making home made illegal alcohol at home called "White Lightning"). I also love that series. Don't laugh. I am country. Yeehawww.

So...

Shia is head over heels in love with a young girl in town who happens to be the preachers daughter. He is no joke either the father he knew about Shia, and his older brothers, and the evil they were committing.

Moving on...

Shia gets all dressed up in a nice suit one day, slicks back his hair and in a very clumsy fashion tries to court the preachers daughter and she says:

"Are you jingle brained or affected in the head or somethin? You sure have a strange way of courtin... that is what youre doin right? Courtin?"

lol

It was really pretty cute so I had to look up the term and see where it originated. It is not something you will ever hear anymore, but I am going to try and bring it back to life!

After all, I am a little "Jingle brained" myself. Well, not the courting part because I am not a guy. You know what I mean lol.

Good afternoon once again.

I got a massive chore duties today. Neither I nor my stray cats were impressed when I got up out at 5 am. I am not graceful at dawn before coffee, and slipping into the dark was probably a not pleasant sight to see lol. Thankfully, it was dark and the cats can't laugh out loud, you know.

Before lunch time, I had to visit our backyard and see if there were vegetables ready for harvesting. Of course, they're showing off. I harvested some eggplants, string beans and bottle gourds. I'll make a post of that next time. I am a lil jingle brained at the moment and include the fact tat I am still going to do some module tutoring after this.

Hope you all have a wicked good day wherever you are in the world.

One love,

@Bloghound

Excuse me dear, I have questions to you. As lucifer told me to ask from you about that. I was a noticing user here but for my admissions exams I had to stop writing here for long time. A month ago I was regular but somehow before stopping a few day I did not get noticed by the random rewarder. And now I am back and have enough to time to spend here. So I want to know that , would that be productive writing article in this account or I have to create new one to work again. Is there any hope for me with this account. Please help me.

I am guessing jingle brained means he is not quite alright in the head, at least in the context of that movie that's what I think it means
